Choosing A Graphics Card For Our 1440p Descenders PC Build

When selecting the right graphics card today we are specifically hunting for great price-to-performance gpus that can run Descenders in ultra 1440p. Right now the best graphics card purchase for this game is the Radeon RX 560 2GB, which will work really well at this screen resolution. It’s currently priced at $99.99, which puts it as one of the cheapest but best performers for this type of game. Its price over the past couple of weeks has increased a bit by $99.99, which makes us think additional savings can be made here if you shop around. For reference, our lowest tracked price for this graphics card was on 28th Nov 2019 and it was priced at $99.99.

Selecting The Right Descenders 1440p Motherboard and CPU

To accompany the graphics option we have put a compatible motherboard into the build. The GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 motherboard in turn enables us to add the Ryzen 5 2400G processor that has the Socket AM4 socket. This CPU is a great fit for Descenders and balances nicely with the Radeon RX 560 2GB, to help reach the right frame rates at this resolution. We have of course chosen this CPU today because of its price to performance credentials where it is currently priced at $149.99. A good point of reference is that the bottom recorded price we have for the Ryzen 5 2400G is $118.98 on 3rd Dec 2019.

Today the GIGABYTE GA-A320M mATX AM4 competitively costs $59.99, which provides it a place in our build today. To offer motherboard pricing insight we spotted this being sold for a low price of $51.88, which was recorded at 18th Feb 2021.

How To Choose The Best RAM For Descenders At The Right Price

One of the most important hardware parts of this computer is the system memory or RAM. To make sure our resolution target and frame rates are met we have chosen to put in Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz. This is currently priced at $42.99 and is well priced compared to the system memory market today. To provide a bit of system memory pricing insight, we spotted this Patriot Viper Steel Series 8GB (1x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz being sold for a low price of $30.35 on 29th Nov 2019.

PC Performance Review at 1440p Ultra Settings on Descenders

With our key performance components in place we are expecting to see this setup running Descenders at around 47 average frames per second, on 1440p screen resolution. This should be achieved on ultra graphics settings. If you turn a few graphics options down we expect around 66 FPS at high graphics.

An Alternative Descenders Graphics Card Option for 1440p

Or you could put the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card into this computer, if you are after an alternative Nvidia PC build.
